I bought this great book "python for kids". I want to give it as a gift to kid in India. She doesn't have internet, but has a computer. What do I need to download and give in a pendrive, so that she can finish the book without an internet connection.

Apart from the book itself, there's two extras to download: 1 - the solutions to all the programming challenges at the end of each chapter, and 2 - the code samples in the book (in case she has difficulty getting something to work).

The solutions are available from the publishers website here: http://nostarch.com/pythonforkids. A zip file of all the code can be found here: /python-for-kids/code.zip.

Depending on when you purchased the book, you might also want to take a copy of the eratta. If it's a fairly recent reprint, there's no need. If the printing is before April 2015, then you should probably send that to her as well.

You didn't mention whether she already has Python installed, so if not, I suggest reading the first chapter yourself, so that you can include the right installation files for her OS.
